The Dark Vessel, also most commonly known as "the Woogyman," is a powerful demon that manifested himself as a sentient cloud of shadow or smoke. His main desire is to spread evil and bring out inner evil from the victim' darker sides by possessing or manipulating them. He resided in the Nexus underneath the Halliwell manor, where he was imprisoned. He was nicknamed "the Woogyman" by Phoebe Halliwell.


Early HistoryEdit

Dark Vessel was once upon in ancient times a evil wizard known as Aeromos, Who was about to start a revolution of rebel wizards to overthrown the Source. During the battle Aeromos revealed that he was possessing the Nexus through his sword, as the swords connected and holding against each other, causing his sword to explode and unleashing the Nexus. Almost instantly attacking and disappears with him, the Dark Palace was later destroyed by the Source Of All Evil for Aeromos's failed attempt on the Source's throne.

Alternative TimelineEdit

Aeromos expressed deep feelings of infatuation for a female wizard named Theodora and wished her to be his queen and join him in his revolution of rebel wizards, while she would rather kill many innocents, then being with him.

The FutureEdit

When Phoebe was 5 years old, she saw a monster in the basement of the Halliwell manor and told her grandmother, Penny. Later on, she witnessed her grandmother imprisoning the Dark Vessel in the Nexus. Since then, Phoebe had been afraid of the basement. Grams had to tell her a story about how she got rid of the Woogyman to allow Phoebe to sleep better. The story contained a rhyme, which was actually a vanquishing spell for the Dark Vessel.

Unleased from His PrisonEdit

After an earthquake in 1999, unknowingly to the Charmed Ones, the Dark Vessel was unleashed from his prison. The demon later on possessed Phoebe, granting her new powers, such as conjuring. While Phoebe was under the dark influence of the Dark Vessel, she attacked her sisters and locked them out of the manor. However, after a while, they managed to get back in. The Dark Vessel tried to finish Prue and Piper off by suffocating, but due to Phoebe's inner goodness and a premonition she recieved, she came to her senses and used the spell to banish the Dark Vessel once again.

When the demon Abraxas stole the Book of Shadows and undid some of the Charmed Ones' spells by reading the book backwards, the Dark Vessel returned. He wanted to finish what he started, and attacked Piper and Phoebe, but they were able to banish him again with the spell.

The UnionEdit

The Nexus, also most commonly known as the Shadow, merged with the Dark Vessel, making the two become a single being. When the demon Zankou took in the Nexus and the Dark Vessel, the Charmed Ones were forced to banish them, which led to vanquishing Zankou and faking their own deaths in the process.


It's been revealed that an unknown powerful collective of demons used a resurrection ritual to gain the powers of the Dark Vessel for their own evil purposes. However, they ended up being vanquished. Due to many people possessing the Nexus, the Dark Vessel became even more powerful with many mimicked powers and several important informations from past users of the Nexus.

Final VanquishedEdit

Even being merged with the Hollow, he was still fearing the outcome if the Prophecy should be fulfilled, while attempting to kill Billie caused him to seal his fate by facing The Goddess of Neutrality and becoming some moments later on vanquished.
